5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible VFM, 26 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unbelievable value for money, this thing cost less than a couple of pints of beer!!

Range is about the same as the built-in wifi, but within range the speeds are always 40 to 50 % higher than with the built in wifi.

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality cable, 26 May 2013

As it says in the title, this cable is surprisingly good quality for the price. I bought 100 connectors and a crimp tool and have made up exactly the patch leads I need at a fraction of the cost of buying ready made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 26 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a fully integrated/built-in bean-to-cup coffee machine. The original manufacturer's cleaning tabs cost £15 for 10. For similar money I bought 100.

They work exactly like the "branded" version at 1/10 of the cost.

Don't buy the branded ones, get these instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing value, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I installed this myself into my S-Max. Took around 90 minutes. I have used the unit for only a short time so far, but it all works perfectly.

Unit feels well built, buttons on front panel feel decent quality and the touch screen is responsive.

Track number, radio frequency etc. are displayed in the MFD (between the speedo and rev counter) and steering wheel controls work straight out of the box, with no configuration needed.

The unit drops a star due to the menus which are somewhat over elaborate with multiple nested menus in menus. Personally, I don't like the font, and the display layout stylistically is fussy. But I'll get used to it, I'm sure. Overall, this is a very minor negative point.

The unit is packed full of features, audio quality is not bad at all and the connectivity is incredible -- for the price this represents great value for money.

In order to make the radio work correctly you need an adapter for the antenna. The S-Max has a "diversity antenna" system so you need a twin Fakra to male aerial adaptor with built-in amplifier otherwise the radio won't work.

Overall, I would recommend this unit as a budget navigation unit which looks totally "factory original".

1.0 out of 5 stars Makes everything sound like medium wave in the 60's, 23 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
two words sum up this unit: cheap & nasty. Although, whilst it's undoubtedly cheap to produce, it's not that cheap to buy.

If you're looking for tinny and nasty sound quality and cheap, flimsy construction then this is the unit for you.

The people that have given this unit a high rating can't be that fussy, but to my mind this unit's not worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars using as a "battery tender", 23 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought to replace a failed battery minder to stop the car battery discharging on a car I only use once or twice per month. Works perfectly.

On receipt of the unit I cut the crocodile clips off and soldered on a cigar lighter plug. Since the cigar lighter in my car is permanently live I simply plug the trickle charger into the mains and the other end into my cigar lighter socket and this unit keeps my battery fully charged without harming the electronics on the car. This will not work if you have a car where the cigar lighter is disconnected when you switch off the ignition (eg. VW & Audi)

Make sure to remember to unplug the charger before attempting to start the car.

Only 4 stars since the unit does have the tendency to get significantly hotter than the Draper unit it replaced. Initially it concerned me, but after keeping a close eye on it for the first couple of months I can say that I'm OK with it, but I do keep the charger well ventilated and away from anything else.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine compound for mirror finish, 23 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This compound is very fine and needs a massive amount of elbow grease to get any results by hand. However, using it with a machine and fine mop really does produce an astonishing mirror finish. I did a black Audi TT and it was unbeleivable. It was so shiny and morror-like that people struggled to tell what colour the car was because it was so glossy.

It takes time though, and the car needs to be spotless and paint fairly glossy already before you start and then this G10 takes it to the next level.

If you need 80% of the results in half the time though I suggest to just go with the G3, which starts off coarser, but breaks down to achieve similar results.

Fiio E05 (E5 black) Headphone Amplifier and Fiio L9 Lineout Dock cable with 3.5 mm "L-shape" Plug for iPod/iPhone (Combi-unit)

3.0 out of 5 stars no real difference, 23 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This device didn't make music on my iPhone any louder really, but using it with the dock cable extends the battery life of the phone massively (because you're not drawing power for the internal amplifier). I only really use it when I need to conserve max battery power on my phone when travelling etc.

In the old days I would have simply bought a spare battery, and not bothered with this amp but with the iphone that's not possible, but that's another story...

It's OK, does the job. Bear in mind you only get one pad. Not five pads as it may appear in the photo.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 star professional product, 23 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
5 star professional product. Really does bring back flat paint and removes light surface scratches to bring the paint to a glass finish. Make sure you use a damp, almost wet microfibre cloth or the compound won't break down properly.
